standstill. good evening. i'm judy woodruff. >> brown: and i'm jeffrey brown. on the newshour tonight, with the final data before election day now out, we look at the overall jobs picture in america, and how the candidates are and are not addressing it. >> woodruff: then, long gas lines, continuing power outages, and massive cleanup efforts in the northeast. ray suarez updates the slow climb back after the storm. >> brown: ordinary citizens, some of them school children, caught in the crossfire in syria's war. margaret warner has our report. >> as syrian rebels expand the areas they control, the assad regime has turned to long-range artillery and air attacks to hit the opposition and civilians as well. >> woodruff: we have a "battleground" dispatch from iowa, where immigration is rarely mentioned by the candidates, but is on the minds of voters. >> although latinos make up only 5% of iowa's population, their numbers have increased by 110% over the last ten years. >> brown: plus mark shields and david brooks analyze the week's news. >> woodruff: that's all ahead on tonight's newshour.
who was in charge was michael brown. you remember brownie, heck of a job. he will be on the show. he's got a unique criticism of the president. he says that president obama reacted too fast to this storm. that should be a very interesting conversation when we come back. >> brownie you're doing a heck of a job. the fema director is working 24/7. [ applause ] >> cenk: we've got plenty more elbows for the last one came from. we have another one end at the of the show. try to guess this ononononononononononononononononononononononononononononononon >> cenk: we're getting our first look inside the tunnels under the east tunnels. the lirr. it has been flooded and as you can see it is a disaster area. literally. and how they even get the trains rolling again or how soon they will is, of course, very much an open question. and there is just a whole host of problems in new york. and unfortunately up to as many as 18 deaths in new york city alone already. now, we go to the issue of how this disaster was
out for me, we'll win brown county again! we'll win wisconsin again! we'll win this election! and together, we'll renew those bonds and reaffirm that spirit that makes the united states of america the greatest nation on earth. thank you, wisconsin. get out there and vote! thank you. god bless. >> that was president obama in green bay, wisconsin speaking at his first campaign event since putting his political schedule on hold to deal with hurricane sandy. obama's traveling to las vegas and then on to colorado. governor romney, meanwhile, is in virginia today, after several days of softened language and tempered criticism. today, romney decided he was done playing mr. nice guy. >> the president's proposal in a setting like this is to continue on the same road. he -- he has the campaign slogan which is forward. i saw the signs out front. forward. i think forewarned is a better word. >> meanwhile, much of the eastern seaboard from new jersey to connecticut remains a disaster area as the cleanup continues after hurricane sandy. according to the a.p., the storm is responsible for t
guy in particular who never recovered was senator scott brown in massachusetts. we are getting the feeling that mid september when the video came out was the last moment in which he was tied with democrat elizabeth warren. now most republicans in massachusetts and d.c. think that brown is probably not coming back next year. host: i want to go back to the "washington times" the game changes they said to watch out for in the coming six days. former oakland -- former president bill clinton was there yesterday. guest: remember back in the 1984 race, they still stuck with mondale in minnesota. a competing series about why the two campaigns are suddenly advertising in places like pennsylvania, michigan, and minnesota. the romney campaign argument is the map is expanding, polls are closing, and republicans have a real shot at winning all three of these states en route to a big electoral votes been. the democrats say this is a desperate move and they are trying to get 270 a little votes in a hail mary pass manner, using minnesota, pennsylvania, and michigan, because they're not going t
. this is something that is unusual when you see the governor jerry brown say we want to raise taxes north to in order to fund education and other services. >> you're a former governor. you know the difficulty in running a state. in california it's particularly difficult because you need two-thirds of the legislature to raise taxes. you have to go to the people to do it. that's what this is. the governor is doing something that a lot of us helped push him to be a little more progressive on and he is. this is what it does. it simply races income taxes on all income above $250,000. that's top 2% of the population. >> eliot: how much does it raise? >> up to 3% for seven years. >> eliot: then it-- >> then it goes back. and it raises sales tax by .25 of a which is one penny on a $4 cheeseburger. >> eliot: i think people need to understand that the impact at the top is progressive impact. it's over 250 or the 500 the wealthier are paying more. but sales tax hurt those at the lower end of the spectrum. people spend a greater amount of their portion much their dollars on those items that will be tacted. here
in the policy arena is legislation by senator brown of ohio to require banks to hold no more than 2% in their wholesale liabilities in relationship to gdp. and that's a number we need to think about that. other people have lot of other numbers. as dodd-frank demonstrates, these issues are imperfect. i think jerry comiss owe said that. this is tough. we can debate the size and the complexity issues, but we're in a difference world, so what to do now. and i think here we need the balanced regulatory framework i mentioned before, a few relatively simple things. the the dodd-frank framework, the basel framework, the global regulatory arena is very complicated with a lot of unintended, cross-cutting effects that i think about as, like, bumper cars. the studies that were discussed that my firm put out, um, were discussed a bit in the earlier panel try to take this on by looking at the array of major financial rules, mapping them out for both their key provisions, intended effects and unintended effects. we don't say all of these unintended or even perverse results will happen. we map them
: fellow how are you? host: tulsa about the races you are watching? caller: sharon brown is ohio. he has done everything. i do not believe he is honest. he said nasty things about mr. brown. he is a wonderful man. and he is great for ohio. i am also a veteran. i support all of the things that the president and the democratic party has done for ohio. i have seen many elections. i am 81 years old. i support all of the women's rights groups. and with the president is doing for our country. now my daughter is from indiana. she is also a strong supporter of the president. we all work with the campaign. i have a brother in new jersey who is going through the terrible things that happened there. also in support of the president. host: have you done anything as far as the brown campaign in the state? caller: i am a little old for knocking on the doors but i worked and one of the offices here for the democratic party. i have been sick for the last three weeks, but i have knocked on doors. i voted on the second. i have donated a small amount of money. i just bought something yesterday. i went out

faces challenges around the world -- from the middle east to china. later in the broadcast jeffrey brown of the pbs newshour will look at some critical issues all but been ignored during the campaign. frontline will examine key moments that shaped both candidates' lives when they were young men. political journalists and authors will join gwen ifill on the "washington week" set to discuss how the presidency has transformed many of the men who have won it. and jeff greenfield of "need to know" will weigh in on this question: how can we predict which candidates will become successful presidents? but we begin with a look at the most pressing problems facing the nation today, and how the candidates plan to remedy them. after all, the election is a fundamental a clash of ideas. and no matter who is elected tuesday, those problems are not about to go away soon. judy woodfruff of the pbs newshour kicks off our coverage. >> thanks, hari. from the beginning of the 2012 presidential campaign, probably no issues have received more attention than jobs and taxes. and perhaps no issues matter more to
shows republican senator scott brown narrowly leading elizabeth warren 45% to 43% in the massachusetts u.s. senate race. brown trailed by five points a month ago. and while the same poll shows president obama with a 14-point lead over mitt romney, 52-38, the former governor's support has grown by eight points there since last month. >> mike, i saw another poll out maybe from the university of new hampshire. i hope i'm not misquoting it. they took a poll in this race, 45%/45%. >> yeah. >> you know what? you've got to give scott brown huge props. i don't think any of us expected him to stay in the race this long with -- >> he's done an usual thinusuali think for a candidate. scott brown has managed to maintain his personal favorability. people like him. they might disagree with him ideologically, but people like him. his favorability rating, he's maintained that while going on the attack against elizabeth warren. he said some really brutal personal attack ads on elizabeth warren. that race, my sense of it is going to come down to how well the president does in massachusetts. one of the key
is trying to butch it up. good morning. >> caller: good morning, guys. you looked great in that brown skirt in the predebate show. >> oh thank you. we'll be doing an election special on tuesday. >> caller: never lose the brown skirt. this is very puzzling that planned parenthood and [ inaudible ] are staying neutral in the wayne powell race. >> stephanie: huh? >> caller: does that make any sense to you guys? >> stephanie: no. >> caller: how could they not be with wayne? >> stephanie: actually we'll get you an answer because we can shoot julie an email. >> yeah. >> stephanie: i have no clue. and i don't know if that's true but let's find out. >> okay. >> stephanie: let's go to jim in nashville, tennessee. welcome. contract hey, you became my momma, i voted yesterday. it was the last day for early voting in nashville. >> stephanie: hurray. >> caller: kind of all right. i went there as a republican signed into a republican and when i got to the voting booth, i turned into a republican't. and i want to thank you and all of the callers that say the truth on this show, and made me
: jimmy kimmel's show the donald ended up playing the great trumpkin in charlie brown's pumpkin patch. >> what's that? >> a check for $5 million. >> huh? >> what the [ bleep ]. >> reporter: the one almost painful to watch, the one that had to hurt the most came from an old friend of donald's. >> i'm going to say it to his face. donald, you're making a fool of yourself. >> reporter: soon donald was tweeting @barbara walters, you just don't get it. he suggested she'd end up apologizing to him. why did you choose me as one of the ten most fascinating people of the year from one top ten to another. >> the number one lame october surprise donald trump offering $5 million to unearth anyone who still takes him seriously. there you go. >> reporter: but trump insisted. >> the response has been unbelievable. and i've had tremendous praise for the most part. >> reporter: least ann coulter came through. >> i totally love it. it's completely show boating but i support donald trump in this. we need somebody like donald trump on our side. >> reporter: so far the only thing released by president obam
states. and whether it's scott brown a republican in massachusetts or hide camp in north dakota or in indiana or linda in hawaii, it's a bunch of people -- and i think of it as it's like you could have an olympic gold medal winning swimmer but how bad can the undertoe get before they get sucked under? and you take massachusetts where brown's got to basically win 100% of the republican vote and 100% of the independent vote and one out of five democrats. or win every romney voter plus maybe 200,000 obama supporters have to split their tickets. wow. that's really hard. >> but that goes to the point, too. if all those people did win the senate would look very different because they are opposite parties in a very -- right? in states that don't traditionally let someone from their party. so there would have to be those down the middle need to compromise people and this is where massachusetts is a great case study because scott brown loses he's going to lose with very high positives. people like him. not because people think he's a terrible person. just the idea of i don't like the ide
folks you may know. chairman reince priebus, and the former cleveland browns great gary baxter is here. we appreciate his support in the campaign. i have been heartened by the support that our campaign is receiving across the nation. the attention that is being focused on this race is because people recognize how much is at stake. it is critical time for the country. we face or rumors -- we face enormous challenges, an economy that is not putting people to work. the people coming out of college cannot find work -- half of them cannot find work. around the world we face at china which is going to be a major economic power. already is and will be a stronger power down the road. has been taking a lot of jobs from people here in ohio. the also face radical violent jihadists. i am proud of the fact that our team has focused on what we will do to bring real change, big change to a country that badly needs it. we have a precedent today -- president today who has a different view. his view is we are on the right track, no need for major change. my view is this track is the wrong force for amer

candidate. quickly, massachusetts rates, elizabeth warren is up 53% over scott brown, 46%. wisconsin, we see tammy baldwin, 48% over thompson, 47, which is a surprise i think to a lot of people in that race in wisconsin. missouri, claire mccaskill 49% ahead of akin. he has no backing from the establishment and the reprehensible comments that he made. nevertheless, this is turning out to be an interesting story line with female senate candidates, mark. >> 1992 was billed as the year of the women. there were a ton of women that won election to the u.s. senate. tamron, i wouldn't be surprised if we see a whole lot of women both win election and win reelection come november 6th. you mentioned some of the democratic women who are running. there are actually a lot of republican women. and even if they don't win their contests, they're running some of the best campaigns this cycle. deb fisher in nebraska, linda lingle in hawaii there are lat of women running. >> close to $100 million of her own money in one of her campaign ads. she points out she went through bankruptcy and pulled herself up, which
believe in him as a leader and as a good person and a family man. senator brown and i are debating a variety of issues. one of the main issue was whether or not the free enterprise system works. i believe when someone decides they're going to go to a community bank for a loan to start a hardware store or go to family for investment or maybe still some property to start a restaurant and they take that business from two employees to 20, 200, we should celebrate that in america. we should advance that. we should reward that success. of the worldama's are trying to demonize that success. we cannot be pro-jobs and anti- job creators. we cannot go on the front of the new york times and vilify those men and women who are signing for loans to create those jobs. that is the fundamental question he and i are having. for me, i believe in the free enterprise system. he and i are also having a public policy debate about the importance of fiscal conservatism. or right now, the lack thereof. senator portman mentioned what we have done. signing for loans to create those jobs. that is the fundament
in black and brown community, not sending out flyers with the wrong date. >> reasonable people can agree on that. are you talking about don't purge them from the roles because they're registered to vote in three other states? that's where i think people -- we want to encourage everybody who is eligible to vote to vote. >> the fact is they're not going to cast their vote in three states. they're not going to get on a plane and go to three different states and cast three different votes. and the idea that one should be disenfranchised because you didn't purge yourself when you moved -- >> that's the election board's responsibility. >> that's also not the real world example. the real world example you want to talk about is what happened in florida and colorado where we had secretary of states inflate the number of people supposedly not eligible and they used bad matching criteria, used outdated lists and scared people into believing that there were lots of noncitizens on the roles. >> and they used latino last names as a way -- >> asking them to fight for it. >> right. show it and fight for
decision in the brown v. board of education in 1954. strom is the record holder to the day of the longest one man filibuster. in the book of record records. 2 hours and 18 minutes. he spoke against the 1957 civil rights bill. we remember him today as one of the last of the jim crow demagogue. he was. he was that. he was one of the last. but when we forget about strofm he was also one of the first of the sun belt conservative. what do i mean by that? what is that? the sun belt it's one of the big stories that is the flow of jobs and resource and population from the states of the northeast and the midwest to the south and the southwest. in the older post world war ii people. they recruiting industries. they were passing right to work laws. receiving lots of fundings from the federal government to build military at the time when the united states was involved in the cold war against the soviet union. so states like mississippi but states like georgia and texas and florida and southern california and arizona and north carolina are being transformed in the postworld war two period by the histo
of it like lucy promising charlie brown she won't pull football? [laughter] >> yes, i think it is. i think that he has to nod to that there is no evidence he would govern in of bipartisan way to read george w. bush that is not elected president in my opinion but did not get a majority of the votes -- [applause] he ran that we as a compassionate conservative and you would have expected him to govern as a moderate and realize he presided over a very deeply divided country and instead he was one of the most radical presidents we've ever had, so i expect the same thing from mitt romney who is actually talked who is espousing more radical right policies than george w. bush ever did. like nixon and ronald reagan in certain ways looks like a moderate in terms of education mitt romney is very willing to slash all of that. >> romney brings up his massachusetts experience where he was in an overwhelmingly democratic state to show how he would govern as president. he had one term in massachusetts. a cynic and he lost interest. and let's -- was he really the governor of massachusetts? i said this on t
the state. just ask scott brown. we will now go to oregon, on our line for republicans, ilene. from one of those non-swing states. good morning. caller: good morning. i thank you for c-span and all that you do for the election is wonderful. i am a republican but i did vote for gary johnson. i watched the debate on your channel. and i had not voted, and we vote by mail here -- had i not devoted and we vote by mail, i probably would have voted for obama. i think he did a stellar job. with the correct name. i think you for your programming. host: are there issues you wish the candidates would address more but you think they are not because oregon is not considered a battleground state? caller: jobs of course. we are one of the poorest states. i volunteer at a food bank. i cannot believe how fast we have grown up. because of lack of employment. and it is sad, it is very, very sad. >> thank you for the call. we want to show you a clip of the governor romney yesterday in virginia. one of those swing states. yesterday he campaigned with majority leader eric cantor, a congressman from virginia.
that have come out of the sun at under senator sherrod brown, the 21st century trade act. it allows congress to have more oversight. it is not a one size fits all. it is -- it looks countries to find out where there are markets for goods. it also keeps a that the mind human-rights. the empowerment -- it also keeps in mind human rights. the environment. it is common sense trey that i support. >> along with senator durbin and the president of united states, the st. agreements not cost -- these trade agreements the not cost that. is not true. we can verify that with caterpillar. the only thing that has cost the jobs here is why we have companies attacking clean coal and not allow us to go in and act as it. so caterpillar cannot build the big trucks this across the world. >> i would turn to maytag. not long after nafta passed, 1700 jobs went to mexico. that company received millions of dollars in taxpayer funds and move the jobs over to mexico. i talked to somebody like they've lost his job there. because the city was so devastated, he had to move away from the community to find work. >> next qu
over it initially. he had an idiot running the fema who's still popping off, mr. brown. i think fema is absolutely an agency on the ground here doing wonderful things. the end of the day the one entity of the federal government that works better than anybody else is the military, and sooner or later we're going to have to put a general in the charge as we did katrina, let them get all the stuff done. they have the equipment, the resources, the manpower, and we've got a big problem ahead. and three or four days from now this is going to continue to be a burden for a lot of people's lives, and you're going to need to respond. [inaudible conversations] >> fema, this fema under obama has been getting great marks all the way around, but they learned a lot from katrina, you know? jon: as the father of an army second lieutenant, i have to agree, the u.s. military does its work very well. so let's take a look at the scorecards. we've been doing this for, what, eight, nine, ten weeks now, and we have -- this is bob beckel's scorecard. he gives governor romney the win two weeks, president obam

is cast as a future presidential hopeful. scott brown hadn't even been sworn in yet in massachusetts, and that's gotbrown2012.com, it was already taken but so many women had been in washington for so many years as legislators and working on important work and their names never bubbled to the top, why not? >> how did you decide you wanted to write this book? you study similar topics but how did this book come about? it was my idea but i have been a political nerd -- my parents remember my sister and i 1960 staging a nixon/kennedy debate. my elephant beat her ravaged. during all of those years, what fascinated me were the magazine issues that came out in advance of the presidential election that we preview the eight or ten or 12, people who ought to be considered and it simply struck me after seeing so many issues of magazines that women were not being fought to the presidential. for some reason they were thought not to the presidential. as an academic you tend to ask why? that was the origin of the book. >> you can watch this and other programs online at booktv.org. >> next, from aust

[ applause ] >> cenk: well, that became a big dispute later. michael brown spoke out today and said that president obama was moving too fast during this storm which is fascinating. and he then went on to clarify he said in the context of the election, i simply said he should have waited, the storm was still forming people were debating whether it was going to be as bad as expected or not and i noted that the president should have let the governors and mayors deal with the storm until it got closer to hitting the coastal areas along the washington, d.c
